"The sculpted cliff top carpet provides an almost comical homage to the power of wind that shapes it into form."

 

Take a closer look at the hardy clusters of plants that inhabit the cliff top and dunes in this coastal fringe. Subtle variations in texture and form create interest and provide a rich palette of texture and color.

This highly specialized group of plants has a delicate beauty and an important ecological role to play. Please restrict your observations to the paths and walkways provided for your use by Parks Victoria.resize IMG_5617.jpg

Visitors travelling along the Great Ocean Road can marvel at the contrast presented by the ground hugging cliff top heath in proximity to the tall emerald forests of the nearby Great Otway National Park.

Guides on local flora and fauna are available from the 12 Apostles Visitor Information Centre – Port Campbell
